Infrastructure Practice Lead, Nate Lasnoski, and Solutions Architect and Chicago Region Team Leader, Annur Sumar, are both scheduled to speak during the 2013 Microsoft Management Summit in Las Vegas the week of April 8–12. Both engineers are Microsoft MVPs, a designation that recognizes IT experts who contribute practical expertise to their communities.
The Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) is an annual forum that brings IT professionals together for advanced training, best-practice sharing, and expert guidance in desktop, device, datacenter, and cloud technologies. The week-long event includes hands-on labs, birds-of-a-feather sessions, networking opportunities, and MMS sessions, such as the presentations lead by Nate and Annur.
This year’s event in Las Vegas focuses on the management of on-premise and cloud-based platform technologies, with sessions on configuring Service Manager for performance and scale from Nate, and leveraging System Center 2012 for continual availability in the private cloud, from Annur.
Configuring Service Manager for Performance and Scale
Nate’s MMS 2013 session will focus on Microsoft’s continuous word processing configuration management tool and making sure that the Service Manager implementation is successful across all businesses. Nate and co-presenter Travis Wright, who will address skill ability in Service Manager, will be discussing the techniques and practices they use to make sure that the systems they implement are stable and well maintained for businesses of all sizes.
Cloud Clustering: Leveraging System Center 2012 for Continual Availability in the Private Cloud
Annur’s MMS 2013 session centers around building a highly-available data center solution in the private cloud through System Center 2012 leveraging techniques. Virtual machine manager, operations manager, and other key System Center components can be used to create a more efficient and ubiquitous network, making it possible to deliver system data centers for infrastructure as a service. Annur’s presentation will focus on some of the components necessary to give data centers continual availability, including high availability clustering, network low balancing, service redirection, backup and restore.
